Hastings has the largest beach-launched fishing fleet in Europe, known as the Stade. The ruins of the castle built by William the Conqueror lie at the top of West Hill and offer wonderful views of the area and Channel. The steepest funicular railway in Britain takes passengers from the Old Town up to the castle. At the top of the East Hill funicular, situated near the fishing beach, is the Country Park, one of Hastings and St Leonards' many fine green spaces.
Opened in March 2012, the award-winning Jerwood Gallery sits next to the fishing beach in Hastings' historic Old Town. Home to a revolving selection of the Jerwood Collection's twentieth- and twenty-first century art, it also holds several major exhibitions a year, showcasing the best of modern art: recently Picasso's work from Lee Miller's nearby Farley Farm House and celebrated figurative artist Paula Rego's first major British exhibition in ten years were shown there. The Coastal Cultural Trail, which you can walk or bike, links the Jerwood to two acclaimed galleries, Bexhill's De La Warr Pavilion and Eastbourne's Towner Art Gallery.
There are many other attractions in Hastings and St Leonards-on-Sea, both architectural and cultural.

The town also hosts the Hastings Half Marathon, the Jack in the Green Festival, Hastings Beer Festival, Coastal Currents, the Old Town Carnival and three seafood festivals.
